Area: Landkreis Rostock / Mittleres Mecklenburg / OstseeThis house is a small art project near the Baltic Sea and the Hanseatic town Rostock. You can come from February to October, please look in the calendar if there are bookings. Our place is not so far from Berlin or Hamburg with the railway ore bus to Rostock and it is on the way from Kopenhavn (or Sweden) to Berlin. In history, this house was a cheese factory, it´s about 120 years old. Inside the house is quite new and moulder. It’s realy in a village, surrounded by nature. Attention: It´s not a farm, it´s an social-art-project, around with a lot of heavy physical activitys (no visitors under 20 years, please). We are teacher, craftsmen, farmer, conservator and artist and we live in close proximity but not directly under one roof. We’re building some things with eco-materials in landscape like Playgrounds in the village, and special view points in the landscape. And we do practical things with the children of the primary school. You can help us in all practical matters. But you should also get some alone finished.
Area: MichiganMy dad and I share this house, but as I do research abroad, I'm only occasionally there. My dad is a retired chemistry professor - loves motorcycles and chatting about history. I do research in biopsychology and have come and gone a lot over the years traveling and living overseas in places like New Zealand and Germany. We love meeting new people from around the world and learning about their home and experiences!
Area: Kathmandu,ChitwanWe have a small orphanage with 12 children at the moment, but some of them are not completely orphan. Some have step father or mother but all of them are from the deprive family,completely from the rural area like they have never seen any vehicles, television or school. Now they are staying with us.We are sending them to English school here in the capital city, Kathmandu. We provide them quality education, basic needs, good moral lessons and everything needed for daily life. We are trying our best to make them fit in this modern world. And till today's date we are going sole in our mission/goals. We don't have any foreign aids or governmental helps. In country like Nepal we don't have any provision for free education or the care for orphan children. And its very hard to walk alone with 12 children, fulfill their needs. But when we look at their innocent faces, full of new hopes for this world, the smile on their faces which is so true so natural and so pure which inspires us in each and every moment. So we would like to request you to come here and experience something new and special. We believe in the hand that serves not the hand that prays." Nepal is completely different country from west. It is very unique and natural with some divine spiritual waves. The people here are very kind and helpful. So come on and take the chances. Life is not only about surviving, we should put our hands together to make others alive and there is nothing holier than serving others. The smile on the faces of others gives more spiritual energy to move forward in your life. Lets cross the limitations of life, we can contribute some thing to make others happy. The contribution can be your physical or moral. Come on walk with us and see how it feels to see the smiles on those innocent faces.

Our mission is to increase the number of children annually, to establish our own school for children where education to basic needs will be free of cost. And we are waiting for the hand to help us out in our mission.

Area: Nagano PrefectureWho likes to stay in a Zen Dojo in Nagano prefecture and help with daily work inside and outside? Surrounded by beautiful nature, many hot springs are also close by. It's a great place for relaxing, enjoying a quiet time and exploring the Japanese countryside. Experience zazen meditation and help with repair work, gardening and maintenance. Anybody over 25 years old and with an international driver's licence is welcome. As you have to stay alone overnight, I prefer to have two guests at the same time. Due to cold weather I can't have workaway guests from November to end of April. FULL FOR 2014
Area: Provence Cote D'AzurWe are a British couple ( three grown up chidlren) who live 6 months in France and 6 months in California. Our place in France is in the heart of an absolutely beautiful medieval village approx 4 kms from the Mediterranean. We bought the house 6 years ago and we have been renovating the the buildings and grounds including large old established garden which was very neglected when we bought it. We offer gardening holidays ( 3 week minimum) to couples or 2 people sharing. Since we offer spacious self contained accommodation, we prefer couples but we do accept people traveling alone when they have useful skills or experience. There is always a lot of work to do in the garden and we primarily need help from volunteers with some experience of gardening. We also ask workawayers to assist with other renovation and maintenance tasks . Our location is not off the beaten track, the village itself is quite lively in Spring and Summer and there are many lovely beaches within a few kms for swimming and sunbathing. There is a daily bus service from the village to the nearest local beaches. There are good hikes in the hills and along coastal paths. It is about 40 minutes by bus to St Tropez or Hyeres and public transport is cheap - the ride to Toulon ( about one hour) is only 2 euros. Please note - 3 weeks is now the minimum for this listing. We are currently offering working holidays starting May 2014.
